  • Rest Template and post call

    In this piece of code i need to make a post call to the server so that it will return a session id and when i make a get call the it should return the json response which was not happening . The get call is just returning a html data .
    now how can i get the response json data instead of the html data.

    When i call response.getBody this is the output returned.
